    I'd say a hot price would be $229.95
    An acceptable price would be $249.95
    A way too high price would be $279.95

    Why the 23cc engine? Why not a 25cc powerhouse? If all a person was going to do was trim weekly growth on grass, I bet the 23cc would be enough. But we do a lot of 14 day accounts and most of the time 23cc's isn't enough.

    I put a TBC-340PF on the truck for the heavy jobs and it certainly is a mad dog on high grass and weeds.

    Keeping an open mind, I would be willing to have my guys do a field test on these new trimmers.
